"Liberty"

PATRICK NICHOLAS KORB's avatar PATRICK NICHOLAS KORB

The Liberty chair is the result of an interesting process of my life.. And to express its importance I must contextualize it with the moment I was living. The year was 2014. Year of elections in Brazil. I was working as a cameraman in the election campaign for governor of the largest city in Brazil: São Paulo, and I also filmed a little of the presidential campaign. In recent years Brazil has been going through a very difficult phase, in which corruption, untrue information, press brutally attacking and the hostility on the streets has been very intensive. In midst of a political campaign I was forced to live this situation every day. Two months before the election day, a plane crash killed one of the strongest contenders/ candidates for the presidency and all his staff. Brazil was taken by a strong/ profound commotion and all the other candidates opted to suspend/ postpone their campaigns during 10 days in mourning.
